Transition Visits

During the Spring and Summer terms, teachers from Longsands will visit our feeder primary schools to work with Year 6 children. The children will also have the opportunity to visit Longsands to work with us here.

During the Summer term the Head of Year will visit primary schools to talk to children about Longsands.

Transition work

We currently have a programme of English, Maths and Science transition work, which is set by Longsands teachers and completed by Year 6 children at primary school during the Summer Term. This work is passed over to Longsands teachers ready for use at the start of the Autumn Term.
